Well..Not really, its my wife's... not mine.
Its a 2005 silver/red. had 2900 miles on it with lots of goodies. My wife just got her license over the summer. This is alot of bike for her but she saw one and had to have it...she just loved evrything about it. I must admit..when I first saw one...and she said how she really liked it...I just nodded my head and said, "yes honey...that is really nice, whatever you want" yet I really was unsure about the look.
Okay...that was 4 months ago....fast forward to this weekend. We picked the bike up Saturday. Sunday, I take her to a big parking lot at the school for her and HER bike (she keeps reminding me its HERS when I start looking at it with lust in my eyes) to get acquainted. All I can say now is MAN...this bike is HOT!!!!
Honestly...all kidding aside!! I love the looks, how it rides, how it handles...it is soo neat!!! Did I say I LOVE the LOOKS!!! oh yeah...suppose it was implied by...IT IS HOT
! And man she looks great on it...They compliment each other.
She did really good on it..its alot of bike for her, but she did good. She even rode it home from the school about 4 miles with some twisties and a sharp descending curve. I wasnt sure she'd be ready for that but she handled it like she owned it. I was happy for her. And she's so giddy over this bike..it makes me happy!
Its amazes me though, we brought it home on a trailer, about 180 mile trip. And it got tons of looks, no kidding. People are definently interested in this bike. We even got a thumbs up from somebody. My friend, who was accompanying us and we were using his truck to tow it back.. said "ahh..look at that guy...he must like my truck"
Soo heres's my dilemma....I really liked this bike. I was kinda aiming for a new GT...its HOT looking too...almost bought one about 2 months ago...but got cold feet. Now... I'm thinking RT cause I REALLY liked her ST...and we would be similarly matched...which I think is important. So this tells me I might be an RT guy.....AH! Gotta adjust my psyche to accept that..may take some time.
Whadda U think? Would a GT and ST be compatible? Or would I, being on GT, have a tendency to out ride my wife or maybe push her to outride her skill level...am I making sense? We really just want to cruise/tour the back roads,parkways, mountains of WV, etc. Please weigh in....I'm interested in your opinions.
Okay...should've introduced myself...sorry. Been riding...yeah....you know...Harley Davidsons...for about 10 years now. Went on a typical Sunday day trip last year in the mountains with my wife on the back of my Road King...and thought..this is boring as hell!!! Put it in the paper...sold it...never looked back. Gave all of my HD stuff I had to the guy...figured..no more riding for me if this is what its all about. Just got plain bored with it. Would rather have had the room in the garage for something more fun ...like my lawn mower.
Then my wife gets interested in motorcycles when I get interested in BMW's; a co-worker bought an LT and just raved about it. His enthusiasm gets my attention. So I lurk on the forums, read the magazines, borrow all of his BMW ON mags, and I'm hooked. My wife catches the bug and Voila....you know the rest of the story. We are reborn....our marriage....my love for the sport....everything is soo good right now....our Jobs....our health....I give thanks to God and dont take it for granted... could be gone tomorrow. Anyway...what a great new adventure we are on and this is going to be an exciting journey!
SOOO ...Just wanted to say "Hey Y'all"....
from West Virginia!!!
Know when you are getting close to WV? When you can HEAR THE BANJO!
Yeah...I play a banjo, thats my other passion.
